Linux "Remember KQ Infotech? KQ Infotech was the Indian company that ported the ZFS file-system to Linux as an out-of-tree kernel module (after deriving the code from the LLNL ZFS Linux work) and KQ's interesting methods of engagement in our forums. The company was successful in delivering an open-source ZFS module for Linux that performed semi-well and didn't depend upon FUSE (the file-systems for user-space module) like other implementations. However, this ZFS Linux code appears to no longer be worked on by KQ Infotech."

It has nothing to do with their nationality. Just their lack of a reputation and history in the industry. Storage providers should have a proven track record before being trusted with critical data. Its common sense, not xenophobia.


Have you never seen the countless discussions among geeks/IT folks about how all development work are given to incompetent foreigners? And (only partially made up) "Oh by the way the support had a slight Indian accent so I began screaming to make my self understood". And I'm not talking about standard insecure clueless lusers :/

Iv'e only encountered that online. I actually interned with a firm that had a department in Pune, India. For rush projects we'd work for 8 hours on it then they would. I never had any problem with the quality of work they did. Honestly, the their national origin was not in my thought process when I wrote that original post. I've met idiots from every corner of the world, and really smart people from the same corners. A nationality/ place of origin does not define a person's intellect.
